I'm sick. I'm not dying...yet, but I feel so icky. My chest hurts, my throat is killing me, my head feels like it might blow up any minute and I have had a nasty flemy cough for the past two days that makes me want to throw up. Not that I'm complaining or anything.
So, what do you do when you are a stay at home mom to a 1 and 2 year old, your husband won't be home until 10pm and you have no sick days? Well, I'm no professional but here are a few things that have worked for me...
*Keep everyone in jammies - all day long. You're not going anywhere anyways so you might as well skip the whole precess of getting anyone dressed. This also helps at bedtime when you are all in pjs already. Combing hair or brushing anyones teeth is also not necessary...don't worry, you'll do it tomorrow.
*Try convincing child that they may also not be feeling that great. Make it fun and exciting by making up a little "sick bed" on the floor and allowing them to watch a movie.
*Load up on lots and lots of meds.
Alright, I am actually not doing this one since I am still nursing Braden. I am trying to take as few pills as possible, but my head feels like a tornado. Anyone have any good semi-natural cures for this?
*And if all else fails...go to your Mom's house so she can make soup for you and your kids.
Bad phone picture, but there's my Mama making me some creamy chicken noodle soup with dumplings today! Thanks Mom! :)
